The Republican Party and the conservative movement has made multiple predictions of disaster during the Obama Presidency, with none of them actually occurring.
They have acted like “Chicken Little”, and have been shown for their deceit.
In the midst of all these attacks, personally and policy wise, Barack Obama has acted with dignity and class, despite the outrageous statement of Florida Senator Marco Rubio that Obama has shown no class. Instead, Republican leadership, including Rubio, needs to look in the mirror at themselves!
A catalog of some of the many predictions of disaster follows:
The economic stimulus would cause a further downturn of the economy.
The auto bailout would fail miserably.
ObamaCare would fail, and would destroy the health care system.
Bank regulations to prevent another bank collapse would fail miserably.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was a dangerous government intervention that would never succeed.
Unemployment numbers would continue to rise, making the economy worse.
Illegal immigration numbers would continue to rise, and crimes caused by illegal immigrants would become predominant.
Gays in the military would cause the downfall of the greatest military in the world.
The Ebola epidemic in Africa would overtake America, and lead to widespread disease epidemic in America.
The government would try to take away private ownership of guns.
Requirement of vaccinations was a plot against families and children.
Higher pay for lower paid workers would destroy jobs and business.
Obama’s executive orders were a move toward dictatorship.
Obama’s moves on the environment are destroying the energy industries.
Obama’s Presidency is the most corrupt in American history.
Obama sides with Islamic terrorism, and will not use drones and other tactics against them.
Obama was plotting with Muslims to destroy Christianity.
Gay Marriage would destroy the American family as we know it.
Obama is conspiring with Iran to destroy Israel.
Obama opening up to Cuba is unprecedented, to deal with a totalitarian government and give diplomatic recognition.
Obama is not respected by other nations across the globe.
The list could go on and on and on, but these 21 examples are just the tip of the iceberg of the Republicans and conservatives predicting gloom and doom during an Obama Presidency!
